Opening Chromium Browser and Creating a Server, Simultaneously
Profile icon

I have a Bash REPL that creates two processes (jobs), one of which is opening nodeJS and creating an HTTP server, the other is opening a Chromium tab to browse the webpage that is being sent by the server I just started. The server is closing after Chromium opens, why? As I would be able to do this on any other computer, why can't I do it on Repl?

I am intentionally trying to do this in one REPL, not two

@sojs Umm... Chromium shows a Repl 404 page :/

Also, Repl already has Chromium.

@sojs It runs for a second but then clicking the Chromium reload and you'll notice the server is already dead.
